I wish I had the time and imagination to come up with fun and creative activities to do with G throughout the week, but I don’t. I do aimlessly scroll through Pinterest a lot though. Here are 10 of the activities I’m going to try this month.

Paper Plate Snowflake Yarn Art
These are so cute and we already have everything we need! If you need them, you can find plastic sewing needles here.
I came across some fun snowflake paper plates at my local Target and was struck with the idea of how to turn them into this gorgeous paper plate snowflake yarn art. Not only is this a perfect activity for the winter months but it’s great for beginning sewing and fine motor skills.
DIY Play Snow
G loves playing in the snow but he hates being cold. Now we can have a snow day inside!
This super easy play snow is a great indoor activity for those blustery winter days when it is just too cold to play outside, but your children have begun to get a lot little stir crazy, which simultaneously tends to make mommy a lot little crazy. It is so much fun, and is a great activity to provide much needed sensory play for active
little hands and minds.
Paper Polar Bear on Ice
We just started working on using scissors and these simple shapes will be good practice for him.

Snow Globe Letter Matching
This snowman alphabet activity is perfect for winter and would be a great addition to your winter theme lesson plans! Not only does it give kids a chance to explore letters, it also provides lots of valuable fine motor practice while they peel and stick the dot stickers.
5 Little Snowmen: Printable Puppets and Song
Songs and quick little finger plays like this one are such a fun way to either introduce new concepts or review ones that you’ve already started working on in a new way.
Snowflake Balance Game
If there’s one craft supply that I like to hoard the most, it’s quite possibly seasonal foam shapes. I have bunnies, hearts, Christmas ones, snowflakes, snowmen, and so many more. They’re so versatile, which is why I like to keep a healthy supply of them around my house! Ha! For instance, we like to play this snowflake gross motor balance activity as a quick way to burn off energy and work on different skills. It’s simple and my kids love it!
Winter STEM- Build A Snowflake Tinker Tray
Provide a surface for your children to use as they build. We used a round mirror, along with construction paper in different colors. I made a demonstration snowflake and pointed out how I started with a six-point starburst in the middle. I showed them how to add the same element to all six sides of the snowflake. Once they girls saw an example, they were ready to go!
Paper Bag Snowman Puppet
No matter what type of climate you live in there is always a great way to enjoy snowman in the winter by bringing the fun indoors. Yesterday we shared adorable bottle cap printed snowmen and today we are sharing this paper bag snowman puppet. It’s a perfect indoor winter craft for kids and it couples great with a favorite children’s snowman book. Look for a recommendation near the end of this post.
